Peterhof

In this tour we will introduce you to the luxury of Russian Emperors and let you feel a touch of gold on your skin.

The Peterhof Palace is a series of palaces and gardens located in Saint Petersburg, laid out on the orders of Peter the Great. These Palaces and gardens are sometimes referred to as the "Russian Versailles". The palace-ensemble along with the city centre is recognized as the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Peterhof ensemble includes the Upper and Lower Parks with 150 fountains spurting upwards powerful jets if water and foir resplendent cascades. The Peterhof system of water supply is unequalled as concerns the time of its operation. At the edge of the 16-metre high natural terrace soars the Great Palace - the focal centre of the ensemble designed by Rastrelli. The rich display of the palace acquaints its visitors with magnificent state rooms and halls and the living apartments of the Russian Emperors. At the foot of the palace you can see a pageant of the Great Cascade with silvery fountain jets and numerous golden sculptures, including the famous Samson Fountain. Water failing down the cascade runs through the Sea to the Gulf of Finland.
